On a circuit round Ashburton.Poolton12322/09/2021
A lovely 4 hr sunny circular walk from South Brent . Slow pace to fight off flu bug. With L and Finn the Pointer. On paths up from SW and down to N. Great views of moors from this pointy Dartmoor outlier and to the sea across rolling smaller hills ,and over the Devon Expressway as the A38 seems to be called here.Chris Pearson14/06/2017
muddy ascent with a superb sunset as backdrop on permissive path from west. Trig on top. HP is outcropping rock nearby.Denise 18/12/2016
Permissive path from Lutton. Great little hill, interesting rock, trig point and good views. Not so good is the glutinous mud.RichardM18/12/2016
